    Seems like every news thread I have to add another five whingers to my ever growing ignore list. However this is currently a SIX step process to add and return to where I was. Please implement a one click process for this?

    On Xenforo, the process will be as simple as clicking a username/avatar and clicking Ignore on the resulting pop-up card. See this thread.

    The ignore feature is sad and stupid in many ways.
    My ignore list is empty, as it should be.

    What's that, I couldn't hear you. You are on my ignore list.


    ;):D

    As mentioned above, the forum software change that is due to happen soon will hopefully make the process much easier.

    In the XenForo-based test environment I find an approach to ignorance that:
    1. should encourage a timely end to ignorance, wherever an end is deserved
    2. allows streamlined reporting of personally ignored content that appears to break a rule (that may, for example, be offensive to some other person)
    – and so on.

    Looking back (vBulletin, with some bluntness; too black and white)

    A few weeks ago I was properly reminded, by a moderator, that it's insulting to make known an act of ignorance.

    Looking ahead (XenForo)

    For what it's worth, I reckon that the imminent improvements to the forum will eventually (not immediately) foster an environment that's friendlier
    – friendlier through more mutual respect
    – wherever respect is deserved :)

    Loving the new ignore list system. Already filled with 12 stone cold shills that ought to be banned. I'll take to ignoring them at the very least.
